Abstract

Coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19) is caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS CoV-2). Currently, the management of patients with COVID-19 depends mainly on repurposed drugs which include chloroquine, hydroxychloroquine, lopinavir/ritonavir, ribavirin, remdesivir, favipiravir, umifenovir, interferon-α, interferon-β and others. In this review, the potential of Nigella sativa (black cumin seeds) to treat the patients with COVID-19 analyzed, as it has shown to possess antiviral, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticoagulant, immunomodulatory, bronchodilatory, antihistaminic, antitussive, antipyretic and analgesic activities. PubMed, Google Scholar, Science Direct, Directory of open access journals (DOAJ) and reference lists were searched to identify articles associated with antiviral and other properties of N.sativa related to the signs and symptoms of COVID-19. Various randomized controlled trials, pilot studies, case reports and in vitro and in vivo studies confirmed that N.sativa has antiviral, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, bronchodilatory, antihistaminic, antitussive activities related to causative oraganism and signs and symptoms of COVID-19. N. sativa could be used as an adjuvant therapy along with repurposed conventional drugs to manage the patients with COVID-19.

Anti corona seeds

NUR-SULTAN/OTTAWA. As demand is very much subdued traders are trying to sell their expensive supplies as quickly as they possibly can. Producers, however, expect prices to rise for the new crop. Issue is the lack of rain in Kazakhstan.

SOFIA/KYIV. Sunflower seed traders are concerned over excessive heat and drought in Bulgaria as these adverse weather conditions may very well impact production. Suppliers are only issuing few offers for the new crop. Ukraine continues to ship sunflower seeds to the EU.

DALIAN. A sudden run on pumpkin seeds has taken traders in China by surprise. No one expected such a move. If sales continue at this rate, supplies will be gone well before the end of the season.

NEW DELHI. Although the prices for peanuts have fluctuated in a narrow range in India in recent weeks, traders reckon that this is about to change. Issue are global factors, especially since production is under the weather in Brazil. Recently updated production estimates, however, tell a different story.

A delivery unit can be, for example, an outer carton with 8 canisters suitable for postal dispatch or a Euro pallet with 25 bags.

If the seller specifies a minimum purchase quantity of 4 delivery units, this corresponds in the example of the canisters to four cartons of 8 canisters each. In the case of palletised bags, this would be four pallets of 25 bags each.
